Health app targets African users

Friday, March 28, 2014

UK-based mobile strategy company Mobilium Global hopes to capitalise on smartphone penetration in Africa by launching the Smart Health application, to promote health and wellness among users on the continent.

“The application is focused on providing an accurate baseline information resource on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, as well as invaluable knowledge on a number of ancillary topics, such as injection safety,” says Mobilium Global in a statement.

The company says the Android app – launched in the beginning of March – also incorporates a mobile Web-based symptom checker, the Isabel Symptom Checker app, which is listed in Britain’s National Health Service Choices Health Apps Library of safe and trusted apps.
